Upon the law in regard to forgery, his honor charged that one may be guilty of for gery it he fraudulently signs his name to a paper, even though bis name is Identi cal with that of the person who should have signed. Had the money order been payable to John A. Long, and it came bv mlstiike "I tho mails or otherwise to toe hands of the prisoner, John A.

The guilty knowledge of the accused must he shown to the satisfaction of the jury, the court charged, but it is not necessary that there should be positive evidence, provided that it is clearly iu ieiabie ironi the facts ami circumstances of the case. If the prosecution relies on the eonlessioti alone the prisoner is en titled to tho lull eiTeot of that portion of the confession which goes in his favor,but if there is other evidence upon which tue prosecution can with justice insist upon a conviction the jury may, if they think proper, convict, notwithstanding the con fession alone would not be sufficient. The charge was lengthy and explicit. After remaining out a short while the jury returned averdiot ot guilty of fraud ulently collecting money on a post office money order. Tue deteiulant was recom mended to the mercy of the court. Sen tence w as deferred. l i r OPEN A mail BAG. Young Armstrong Likely to Got Another Term of Imprisonment.

Chart of tho North Atlantic ocean contains a great deal of Interesting information covering the month ol January. It continues to show the value of and use of oil in lessening the tiangeis oi heavy ae ts. Tue month of lanuary was an unusually stormy month, and stormy weather prevailed in the transatlantic rome on the coast of tho I'niied States north of tho 30th par allel during the early part of the month. Gales were experienced as far south as tae 30th parallel. During the first live days of tho month heavy north era were encountered in the Gulf of Mex ico. A heavy fine Ice is reported about 60 nnies north of hi. John’s, N. F., and it is thought that tho Ice has now got as far south aa New Fou >dland. The old dere lict schooner Ida Francis is reported as having drifted ashore on Fish Cay. She bad been a long time drifting about the ocean. There is an interesting report from ( apt. Wnkcrnan, ot the British hark lianktields. ol i wo earthquake shocks lelt at sea on Nov. Itt in latitude 0:50 north, longitude >:A j west. Thu captain says that bis ship trembled greatly and a rumbling nmso was nearrt as though tin* ship was dragging over shingle. The shocks lasted from sixteen to twenty seconds. Tho '-kv was clear, with a slight hnze mi the horizon. The weather was oleur and sultry and there was a high and confused sea. The British hark St. Pat rick also reports that on Nov. 12 latitude 41 :'H> north, longitude 4:20 east, an im mense water spout was sighted tu the sou li west, distant about one mile, it appeared to ho about 120 'eet through and at the base, ami me water was one mass ot loam-ike* clouds of smoke. The cap tain could not guess the height, but the top was high up in the clouds aud the centre was continually In motion, the wind being from northeast, variable and squally, raiu falling in tor rents, with hailstones as large as wal nuts. The chart says that in the weather for February theetortn area extends over the en'ire North Atlantic, its southern limit being a line Ironi ('ape Finistere to the A/ires and Bermuda. XV ithin this area gales may be expected on the average of once in eight dare. In the transatlantic route the great*r number of gales will blow from southwest to northwest. North ers may be expected in the western part of the Gulf of Mexico. Icebergs and field Ice mav be encountered south and east of the banks of Newfoundland as far as latitude 42 north and longitude 42 west. It is a remarkable fact, as tin pilot chart shows, that the coast from Florida to New York is thickly studded with floating wrecks, and no effort is be ing made to destroy them. It is true that, tew if any accidents have been re ported by vessels coming in contact with them, but there may be yet, and the wrecks may cause great loss ol life as well as ol property. AT THE THEATRE. Janisb’s Successful Engagement— The Coro Due Week's Attractions. Mine. Jauisli's popularity was shown yesterday, when, notwithstanding tho disagreeable weather and sloppy streels, the Theatre was almost filled at the mati nee. “Violets,” in which she appeared, t,* a well written and interesting story. She is essentially an emotional actress, and the play is a splendid test for her re markable powers, tuough hardly afford ing her such a scope as the "Princess Andrea.” Her “Violets” quickly won the sympathy of the audience, and each climax was enthusiastically applauded. Al the end of the fourth act a btineu of violets was thrown over the footlights. Alter tho performance a number ot ladies waited in the rain at the stage entrance to see her come out. At night “Violets” was repeated be fore a small audience, which was due to the rain. A Ch it With ,Lint ah. Between the act* yesterday aiternoon Mme. Janish chatted eutertainingly about her profession and current topics. Newspaper men always expect stars to rave over the particular city they are in, and aclresses do it so persistently that the chestnut belt has to be resorted to frequently. Remarkable as the state ment may seem, Mme. Janish did not one? allude to her impressions of Savan nah or the South, further toan a mention of,a lingering memory of a pleasant tout through Florida. She expects to come through the South next season, but when asked what play she would appear in, laughingly re marked that sun could not tell, as the time is too lar off'. A card attached to a floral tribute, which she received at the eod of one of the acts from a lady admirer, contained wluit was intended to tie a quotation, hut the omission of a word rather destroyed the sense and puzzled the Couutess for a few minutes.

An Atlanta special to the Mousing Nkws yesterday stated that 51 aj. Henry Fink lias been tendered tho position of ohiof executive officer of ilia entire Rich mond and Danville system. A report has been circulated for some time to tho effect that Maj. Fink was about to leave the East Tennessee, Vir ginia and Georgia, and that Capt. Raoul, the Central’s ex-l'resideut, would succeed him. Only a few days ago Maj. Finn was elected a director of the Ricnmond Terminal Company, which has absorbed the Richmond and Danville and the East Tenn.'ssee, Virginia and Georgia.

Alexander stated that he had not heard of it. but tuouglit that there might he sametuing in it. A chief executive officer would probablv be something higher even than a general manager. As the systems wnicu have recently been consolidated were rivals before, it is likely that someone who is thoroughly familiar with the differeut linos would lie put In charge of tae management of the combination. t apt, Raoul returned last night from a fortnight's visit to Cuba. He looks as il the rest did him good. When asked if lie knew any thing about the rep >rt concern ing .Maj. '-'ink or himselt he replied that lie did uoi. He has been off on a pleasure trip, and has not kspt up with the rail road news. He had not, up to last night, received an offer from the East Tennessee. Railroad and business men generally who have been talked to in reference to the interstate commerce bill favor Capt. Raoul for acommisstonersbip. All agree that he ts thoroughly qualified to fill the position aud would make an excellent commissioner. His friends, however, have not consulted him yet and do not know whether ne would accept or not. BASE BALL NEWS. Manager Morton Talks \l>ut the Winning Longue Club. Manager Morton, who is now in Chi cago, stopped iu Detroit on his way West a day or two ago. At the base ball head quarters there he was interviewed by the Detroi- News man. After speaking of his Savannah eu gage mint Morton was asked what club he thought would win iu the National League race. “1 tbiuU Detroit is a sure winner. The men have become acquainted with each other anti will play a .great deal stronger game than last season. Chicago, on the other hand, has a lot ot now players, wao have not been tried, and at best they are unacquainted with each other. Tfi • De troit* did bot.er last year than was ex pected, don” you think so, deacon?” turning to Deacon Jim White who, with Dan O’Leary, were in the parly. “Well,” mplied the deacon, “if our pitchers held out we expected to ‘get tHere,’ hut they didn't, aud that let Chi cago go to the irout. II Twitched had not been worked too hard iu the beginning of the Southern trip the result would have been different. This year we will look outforthat. Twitched is one of the best pitchers in the country.” “A regular daudy,” remarked O’Leary. “He’d be a comer this season.” “I don’t like the now rules lor several reasons,” said Mr. -Morton. "Nor I either,” said tne good deacon, who continued: “The old pitchers have the best o: the batsman by large odds. Their talk about breaking down is ad uonseuse. After they find that it doesn’t hurt them, they will settle down; and, seeing that they have nearly the whole length of a man to fire at, you bet they will get used to the new order ol things quicker than a batter, unless he is a free hitter.” It is now stated for a certainty that the Kausas City Base Bad Club has purchased me franchise of tue Bt. Louis, tue latter organization ceastug to baa member ol the league. i’resident Morrow has appointed New Orleans, 51emphis, Charleston, Savannah and Nashville on the schedule commit tee, which will meet in New Orleans during the 51 aid i Gras festival. The Charleston base bad club stock, of a par value of $25 a share, is now for sale on the market, 820 bid and $25 asked. This is a marked increase, for a few weeks ago $5 was bid auu $lO was asked. Louisville is considered the cheapest club in the American Association, yet it is generally acknowledged a- one of the strongest.
